Club & Ground Name - Millwall - The new den

How Easy Was It To Find?

5/10 - we seemed to be going through streets and streets for ages, until we got there.

Car Parking. Was It near? Was It Free? Was It Well Policed/lit?

10/10 - I traveled in the supporters bus and as it was a coach travel only game, we had our own buspark in the away section which was surrounded by large fencing with barbed wire across the top, police everywhere - they obviously don't tae no chances.

View. Pillar In The Way?

10/10 - second tier behind the goal nothing in the way from where i was can't fault it. No viewing problems at all.

Comfort (seating, leg room, does it have a roof etc)

8/10 - Was good enough i stood for all of the game seemed to have a resonable amount of room, had a roof over our heads.

Toilets.

8/10 - plenty of them, large in size and have intresting posters on the wall, something to do with the football phone in and not bothering your missies with it.

Catering (Quality, price, queues)

7/10 - 2.30 for a pint of larger not bad considering your in London, large amount of chips for 1.20, and a giant giant yorkie for 60p, queues mount up easily though and theres not a lot of room to stand around down there especially when at first we weren't allowed to take our grub/drinks into the ground.

Atmosphere From Home Fans, How Condusive Was The Away End To Creating A Good Atmosphere

9/10 - Not a huge attendance but they make up for it with the noise they create, although its fair to say we matched them, all the ground will sing which is quite unusual and when they score its defening, we were in between the two loudest sections of the hoem fans so we were perfectly placed.

Stewards, Policing

10/10 - Stewards dident't bother us at all, no problem with them, Police had it down to a tee, we ahd an escort from south mimms services all the way to the ground loads of vans following us, we went straight into the away section and parked there which as described before is fenced off so no way in. after the match we waited 40 minutes while the home support was cleared and had an escort out of London - No trouble at all.

Pubs, Things To Do Nearby. Is There Much To Do For The Early Arriver At The Site Of The Ground?

1/10 - we arrived about 40 minutes before kick off, for obvious reasons we went straight into the ground, so your left with the bar inside the away section.

Overall. Out Of 10, What Do You Feel The Ground Deserves?

8/10 - one of my more enjoyable away trips, great game, great atmosphere, nice stadium, NO trouble, so my advice to anyone put off going to Millwall is on't worry the police have it well sorted from what i can see. Great day out

Agree, there's bugger all to do in the local area, and it's best avoided til match time.

As for trouble, there's no more trouble at our games than most other clubs, it shouldn't put anyone off coming.

10/10 - the directions given by the club site were perfect, didn’t get lost once and went straight into the car park by the ground with our pretty little press pass.

Car Parking. Was It near? Was It Free? Was It Well Policed/lit?
10/10 - parked in the away section, perfect for me… the lazy one.

View. Pillar In The Way?
10/10 - Yeah, I could see, if I wanted. There was a boy's head in front of me. I tried to kick it. He burped at me.

Comfort (seating, leg room, does it have a roof etc)
7/10 - That stand was bloody steep, it scared me! Leg room was ok, and the roof was very much there.

Toilets.
5/10 - They were toilets, I was more bothered about the other stuff.

Catering (Quality, price, queues)
5/10 - I didn’t eat anything. Smat had this thing that looked dead. Apparently it was a hotdog, and the dead worms were onions. Rather him than me.

Atmosphere From Home Fans, How Condusive Was The Away End To Creating A Good Atmosphere
5/10 - They lost to the bottom of the league, so they weren’t too noisy. Rotherham fans seemed loud, but sat in the middle of only a hundred or so, I would think that.

Stewards, Policing
10/10 - No trouble, stewards seemed nice. Apparently, you were automatically arrested for throwing missiles, but when someone tried to use me as one, he wasn’t arrested (yes, I mean Smat).

Pubs, Things To Do Nearby. Is There Much To Do For The Early Arriver At The Site Of The Ground?
0/10 - I saw nothing.

Overall. Out Of 10, What Do You Feel The Ground Deserves?
10/10 - That, was the best day I’ve had for ages… even if I was freezing.

How Easy Was It To Find?

5/10 - From the station I was reccommended to get off at (New Cross Gate), I saw no blue shirts, and no-one in the local newsagents even knew what the New Den was. A nice local peasant pointed me in the right direction, it was about a ten minute walk. But I took nearly forty.

Car Parking. Was It near? Was It Free? Was It Well Policed/lit?
No idea.

10/10 - No problems.

Comfort (seating, leg room, does it have a roof etc)

8/10. Stood up for the most part, it was a big red squidge at the back of the stand. Can't think of anything particularly below-par.

Toilets.

Didn't venture in. Sadly.

Catering (Quality, price, queues)

4/10. Spent about £2.80 on an average hot dog with what looked like rubber onion shavings. There was a queue, but I joined it at the front, I think.

Atmosphere From Home Fans, How Condusive Was The Away End To Creating A Good Atmosphere

7/10 - A jolly time was had by all. Some nice banter. Rovrum were loud, considering there were only twelve of them.

Stewards, Policing

10/10 - Helpful, polite, clean-shaven.

Nice Sainsburys I got lost next to. Didn't bother investigating 'owt else.

How Easy Was It To Find?

0/10 - Stopped at three different Underground stations, asked countless people and nobody knew where it was. We got there by a miracle a few seconds before kick off. My advice is to parachute into the stadium because you might just find the place by air.

Car Parking. Was It near? Was It Free? Was It Well Policed/lit?

?/10 - What kind of idiot risks their car in a dump like Millwall?!

View. Pillar In The Way?

10/10 - Great view of the entire pitch from the upper tier.. no problems at all.

Comfort (seating, leg room, does it have a roof etc)

6/10 - Comfortable enough but there didn't seem to be any rows of stairs between blocks. I had to clamber over seats to get in and out.

Toilets.

8/10 - Fine, loads in there and all clean.


Catering (Quality, price, queues)

?/10 - Was in too bad a mood to bother.

Atmosphere From Home Fans, How Conductive Was The Away End To Creating A Good Atmosphere?

3/10 - For such a massive reputation I think they let themselves down. Hardly anybody actually turned up and they didn't sing at all. All I heard was some stupid 'one note' thing that they do occasionally. The dumbest thing I've ever heard? Possibly.

Stewards, Policing

10/10 - Great from the police. They let us get on with our standing up and chanting and I even had a friendly chat with a couple of coppers outside the ground when I left fifteen minutes before full time.

Pubs, Things To Do Nearby. Is There Much To Do For The Early Arriver At The Site Of The Ground?

1/10 - S*it hole. Still, nicer than Tottenham!

Overall. Out Of 10, What Do You Feel The Ground Deserves?

6/10 - There's not much good to say I'm afraid. At least the ground isn't too bad and the seating is comfortable. You can also go for a pish without standing in someone elses.

4/10 - Police sent us on a grand tour of london.

10/10 - I was on the coach, loads of barbed wire and big spiky things to stop the locals saying hello.

View. Pillar In The Way?

Atmosphere From Home Fans, How Condusive Was The Away End To Creating A Good Atmosphere

7/10 - They were fairly loud, but we outsung them for most of the game. Best moment was them singing "You'll never make the station", and we replied with "We all came on coaches, we all came on coaches tra la la la, tra la la la. Didn't hear them again after that :lol:

5/10 - Disn't notice anything.

7/10 - No problems despite the reputation and a good seat. The ground itself in a little dull because all 4 stands are the same but its a decent enough trip and you can get out quick.

The New Den, Millwall FC

How Easy Was It To Find?
Not very. Seemingly miles away from the motorway near the centre of London. Thankfully I went on the coach and we had an escort, Id never dream of driving.

4/10

Car Parking. Was It near? Was It Free? Was It Well Policed/lit?
Street parking only, and didnt see any near the ground. Was in the coach though, so not 100% sure.

View. Pillar In The Way?
Back row of the upper tier. Its bloody steep, and you have a heart attack walking up all those steps, but its worth it. Best view around, barring the back row of the upper at Spurs!

10/10

Comfort (seating, leg room, does it have a roof etc)
With it being so steep, there was a massive amount of height between each row, and therefore loads of legroom. I only sat down for the first 5 minutes though, theye didnt hassle any of us on the back row and we were stood up for the whole game.

10/10

Toilets
Very small and very cold. Ive seen much worse though, and at least they were clean.

6/10

Catering (Quality, price, queues)

Prices were fairly cheap, especially by London standards. The queues were absolute murder though. The concourses are shared between both the upper and lower tiers, and it really isnt big enough to have 3,000 fans fighting for pints. The fact they had us all go in at the same time and hour before kick off didnt help either.

Atmosphere From Home Fans, How Condusive Was The Away End To Creating A Good Atmosphere
No ordinary game maybe, and I cant imagine its this loud when the likes of Creweare in town, but the only word to describe the atmosphere was raucous. The first half hour or so, it was pretty poor, just a load of scallies near the away end constantly singing 'your support is f**king sh*t.' Especially after they scored though and the floodlights came on, the ground came to life and it was rocking for the entire second half.

9/10

Stewards, Policing
Annoyed me before the game, seemed to enjoy having a big following in town, and kept collaring people for nothing and threatening to throw them out. One lad got warned that his behaviour would get him thrown out. His crime? Singing 'Everton, Everton, Everton!' During the game though, they were at the front and left us alone. All of us on the back row were stood up, people were banging on the walls, singing, at least they let us enjoy the 90 minutes.

7/10

Pubs, Things To Do Nearby. Is There Much To Do For The Early Arriver At The Site Of The Ground?
Nothing. Especially when they lock you up the second you get there until 6pm

0/10

Overall. Out Of 10, What Do You Feel The Ground Deserves?
Good atmosphere and great view were its plusses. The nothingness of the area, all being locked in, and the tiny concourses go badly against it.

Stewards just let us stand, and unreserved seating was excellent. Loads of Police, who wouldn't let us leave for an hour after the game. Didn't see a Millwall fan at all after the game though.

You can drink/eat in the London Bridge area if going by tube/train. Once you get to Millwall you have to go straight to the ground, but you can drink in the ground.

5/10 - Even with a London based Latic with us, we still managed to make a wrong minor error on the tube. Though it's easy to fix.

8/10 - Errr........Yeh, some lovely 'Yeovil' writing on the wall to read as well

Catering (Quality, price, queues)

10/10 - £2.60 a pint, or was it £2.80. I cant remember. Not too bad considering your in London. We only had 300 so the queues were never more than five deep. Pies were lovely, unlike at Latics - they were actually warm and had filling in the middle. Liked them so much, I had two :thumb:

Atmosphere From Home Fans, How Condusive Was The Away End To Creating A Good Atmosphere

5/10 - Millwall fans were pretty poor. Two groups to our right and left, the left hand one was emptyish, same chants from them. Over and over again - "No one likes us.", "Let 'em come." and that stupid "miiiii" chant. Do they have any other songs? as I didnt hear any.

Our fans. Not many of us, but we didnt shut up. Cant recall us being quiet for long, bar 15 minutes at half time. ;) Those in the home ends heard us, particular those donning pink t-shirts

Stewards, Policing

10/10 - Stewards never bothered that we were stood all game. Didnt really notice them to be honest. Police were visible on the platforms, but seemed to take a back seat and just watch on without making their presence felt.

Pubs, Things To Do Nearby. Is There Much To Do For The Early Arriver At The Site Of The Ground?

7/10 - Pub in London Bridge was decent, with football on the tele.

3/10 - Enjoyable trip but I cant see me being in a rush to go back. The ground is a bit crap to be honest. It looks the same on all four sides, and seems to lack a single bit of character. Glad i've ticked it off.

We parked rite outside the away end, a fair few old bill about. 10/10

One of the best view's in the league, infact maybe the best in the league for away fans. The stand is steep so even when your near the back, you are still behind the goal. 10/10

The seating didn't get used by me, I stood all match witht he Barmy Army, but the stand does have a very good roof so you can produce some quality noise. 10/10

Pretty good tbh, one of the best in the league again, when I went in 97 they were better, but they have been kept at the same standard for ten years. 10/10

Pretty basic food, not the best I have had at an away ground. However, the beer on offer was very good, and a pint for (2.60?) was very good. 7/10

Atmosphere From Home Fans, How Condusive Was The Away End To Creating A Good Atmosphere

8,000+ fans and 702 Bournemouth fans, so it did produce a very lively atmosphere from both sets of fans. The Millwall fans produced the usuall intimidating atmosphere, and we just sang out usual Bournemouth songs. 9/10

Stewards, Policing

Hardly any stewards in the away end which was good, and its one of the last grounds in league one which they let you stand :thumb:
I didn't see as many police as I thought, but there was no trouble so I assume to OB did a good job. 8/10

How Easy Was It To Find?

Got out at Surrey Quays stn, didn't have a clue where I was going, decided I was going the wrong way when I saw signposts for the Rotherhithe tunnel. Turned around. Back at Surrey Quays station noticed a signpost saying Stadium, so, I followed it. It lead into an estate which I wonderd around not having a clue where I was going to. Asked in a newsagents, they hadn't heard of Millwall FC (I was about 300M from the ground ffs). Wonderd around a bit more, found a McDonalds. Fortunatly there was a friendly Millwall fan who showed me where to go, if it wasn't for him, I'd probably be lying in an estate bleeding from stab wounds right about now! If you plan on going to Millwall FC DON'T USE THE UNDERGROUND. (I had to get directions off a copper going back as well, I still managed to nearly get lost.)

Yeah, no complaints.

Club & Ground Name
Millwall, New Den

How Easy Was It To Find?

I knew where i was going anyway but for someone that didn't it would be hard as its sort of just there. You can't see it from far away unless you go to South Bermondesy station.

7/10

Car Parking. Was It near? Was It Free? Was It Well Policed/lit?

Parked on a industrial road near the ground. It was quite well lit but not very well policed. Its not an away fans parking area though so I wouldnt suggest it if your not parking with a few Millwall fans that you know

8/10

View. Pillar In The Way?

Very good, steep but that makes it better

10/10

Comfort (seating, leg room, does it have a roof etc)

Yeah pretty good, had a roof and standard seats with adequate room

8/10

Toilets.
Not bad

7/10

Catering (Quality, price, queues)
Ok, had a sausage roll, but wanted a burger but the woman said they didnt have any. Price was oK

Pubs, Things To Do Nearby. Is There Much To Do For The Early Arriver At The Site Of The Ground?

For an away fan its sh!t around Millwall but you are in London so things to do in the City just not in Bermondsey.

7/10

Overall. Out Of 10, What Do You Feel The Ground Deserves?

Good stadium in a sh!t whole, but thats inner London so i'm used to it :P Shame the stewards took so long to let us go and decided to lock us in the Away supports "cage"

8/10.

Millwall - The Den

How Easy Was It To Find?

A battleground, I feel sorry for the away fans that come from Surrey Quays station. You walk past a massive dodgy estate, through a wasteground, under 3/4 railway bridges and then past a waste management facility.

Car Parking. Was It near? Was It Free? Was It Well Policed/lit?

I've heard it's not too bad. If you park inside the ground that is.

View. Pillar In The Way?

10/10 - not being biased, but it has the best view of any of the stadiums I've ever been to.

Comfort (seating, leg room, does it have a roof etc)

6/10, I'm a lanky t**t, so my knees press against the seat in front. Have to part 'em - I look like a mong.

Toilets.

5/10 - shithole, but numerous bogs and stuff.

Catering (Quality, price, queues)


6/10. Beer tastes like piss, only bought a drink there once this season. Burgers are obviously not very well made, but are orgasmic with chips.

Atmosphere From Home Fans, How Condusive Was The Away End To Creating A Good Atmosphere
Varies. The CBL sing consistently, but the real noise only happens when we're doing well in the league or are playing a rival/top of the table type club.

Stewards, Policing

They'll be fine with the away lot, but are the scum of the Earth with us.

There's the Bramcote arms, you don't wannna go there.

How Easy Was It To Find?

From South Berm overland station, easy as pie (police will escort you through a walkway/cage thing). If you're an away fan coming from any tube station (New Cross, Surrey Quays or Bermondsey) you've got to make your way through the less scenic bits of SE15/16 (railway arches, an incinerator, scrap metal yards and some dodgy estates).

Car Parking. Was It near? Was It Free? Was It Well Policed/lit?

Never used it.

View. Pillar In The Way?

10/10

Comfort (seating, leg room, does it have a roof etc)

6/10, like pretty much any all-seater.

Toilets.

7/10 - nothing too wrong with them yet.

Catering (Quality, price, queues)

5/10 - prices about standard, but pies needed for winter games.

Atmosphere From Home Fans, How Condusive Was The Away End To Creating A Good Atmosphere
We'll always make noise, but away fans' turnout and volume varies massively.

Stewards, Policing

0/10 - The stewards are abysmal. Far too prone to picking mob-handed on someone who's been (non-offensively) vocal.

Pubs, Things To Do Nearby. Is There Much To Do For The Early Arriver At The Site Of The Ground?

Despite the Barnaby now being flats and the Albany and Archer boarded-up and 'awaiting development', there's still a few pubs nearby - the Lord Clyde, the Palmerston, the Bird's nest (all Deptford), a group in New Cross and the Bramcote, Lion and Foresters by the ground (ish). Problem is, not many of them are 'away-friendly'.

Overall. Out Of 10, What Do You Feel The Ground Deserves?
10/10. I've got a certain bias though.

Club & Ground Name - Millwall - The New Den

How Easy Was It To Find?

Got off at Surrey Quays. There was the odd sign for a stadium so we follwed those until we saw the ground. Had to walk through a horrible area, which the coppers later told us was a mistake. The official coaches got lost travelling there but that is more down to inept drivers and policing rather than a hidden stadium.

8/10

Car Parking. Was It near? Was It Free? Was It Well Policed/lit?
Didn't use it. Wouldn't have liked to have parked my car around there though.

View. Pillar In The Way?

Perfect view. No pillars.

10/10.

Comfort (seating, leg room, does it have a roof etc)

Stood all game pn the back row. Decent roof which helped with the noise.

8/10

Toilets.

Didn't use them.

Catering (Quality, price, queues)

Only sold overpriced beer as alcohol. So I bought a bottle of overpriced water.

2/10

Atmosphere From Home Fans, How Condusive Was The Away End To Creating A Good Atmosphere

Decent enough. It was their game of the season though. When they scored they went a bit OTT and a few coins and seats were exchanged. I suspect I would have been intimidated if I had been on the lower tier.

8/10

Stewards, Policing

Stewarding was relaxed about standing but kicked one chap out for waving a sign around that he found on his seat!

4/10

Policing was OTT. They were friendly enough and I realise its a difficult ground to police but to hold us in a pen for 45 minutes and then march us all over London was crazy. Good fun, but crazy. We almost missed our bus home.

Pubs, Things To Do Nearby. Is There Much To Do For The Early Arriver At The Site Of The Ground?

Its London! We made a day of it and had a jolly around the city looking at various stadiums and sights. The immediate area surrounding the ground is run down and somewhat deprived so we knew not to hang around there. London was great fun though, the tube was brilliant.

9/10

Overall. Out Of 10, What Do You Feel The Ground Deserves?

Nice enough ground. Brilliant day out. It really was a laugh a minute and one of the best away days.

9/10.

Some of you really need to brush up on your geography.

Surely The Den couldn't be any easier to find?

By train: Train to London. Get tube to London Bridge. Then OVER-GROUND to SOUTH BERMONDSEY. The first stop! Trains run every 15 minutes or so. You can actually see the ground from the platform. All you do is walk through a walkway with a sign that says 'AWAY FANS' to the away turnstyles. Feck me...how hard is that?

By car. Go around M25 over into Kent. Then take A2 in to London. Follow all the way until you reach sign-post to ground. Find street parking.

Things to do? If you get here early you've got the famous and popular Borough Market next to London Bridge. Or you could go along the Southbank, where there's the Tate, Tate Modern, Globe, plenty of nice pubs etc. Things to do near the actual ground? Check out the Old Kent Road. Jesus...this is London.

Millwall v Southend, League game, February 12th 2008

Club & Ground Name
Millwall - The Den

How Easy Was It To Find?
Been there before. Take the train from London Bridge to South Bermondsey and follow the signs. There was a huge "path for away fans" sign when just coming out of the stadium. No trouble there.

Car Parking. Was It near? Was It Free? Was It Well Policed/lit?
Train's better.

View. Pillar In The Way?
Nope. Was at the far left of the away end. No pillars whatsoever.

Comfort (seating, leg room, does it have a roof etc)
Not bad, quite a lot of room.

Toilets.
Didn't use any toilets.

Catering (Quality, price, queues)
Got myself a Burger King before the game. Was alright.

Atmosphere From Home Fans, How Condusive Was The Away End To Creating A Good Atmosphere?
Awful turnout from the home fans even though the game was on a Tuesday night. Barely sung in the first half, heard a couple of "no one likes us" in the second half. Disappointing.

Stewards, Policing
Didn't have the chance to encounter any trouble that demanded stewards. Must be good.

Pubs, Things To Do Nearby. Is There Much To Do For The Early Arriver At The Site Of The Ground?
Dunno.

Overall. Out Of 10, What Do You Feel The Ground Deserves?
Not too bad a ground despite what is said about the area.

7/10.

How can people say theres not much to do!

We're the closest club to Central London, with us being 5 minutes on the train to London Bridge which has a whole host of pubs.

Around the ground its a shithole with about 3 pubs left now. But just get the train from London Bridge to South Bermondsey and your about a 4 minute walk from the ground for away fans so you dont need to touch the place just go there for the match.

It is amazing isn't it. Whilst i can understand people not wanting to take in the delights of down town Bermondsey or Peckham, like you say the ground is next to the station. I can't think of many other clubs so central in a city. The Den is literally in the middle of one of the greatest cities on the planet!

No it wasn't intimidating, obviously if your looking for trouble then your going to understandably find it "intimidating". But for an average person walking through past some estates and under a bridge with the odd "oh look the Football factory was filmed here comment". In all honesty there are a lot more menacing estates around East London area.
